Nicole Kidman shows off her cutout abs on the red carpet with Keith Urban
Nicole Kidman attended the CMA Awards with husband Keith Urban, and the actress donned a cutout dress that showed off her toned abs. For the big country music event, Kidman wore a sleek black dress with one sleeve and a pulled back section in the center and sides, which showed off his physique. She also wore a large pair of matching black high heels. As for Urban, he rocked jeans and a black graphic t-shirt, with a silver jacket and black bootie-style shoes.
Kidman will soon be seen wearing a very different look from her CMA Awards clothes, as she stars as redhead comedy icon Lucille Ball in a new drama film titled Being the Ricardos. Co-starring with Kidman in the film is Javier Bardem, who will play Desi Arnaz, Ball’s husband both on and off screen. The film “takes place over a week” during the production of the couple’s classic sitcom, I love lucy, and sees Ball and Arnaz facing “a crisis that could jeopardize their careers and their marriage.”
Being the Ricardos is written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, who is an acclaimed screenwriter and director, having received numerous awards from other biographical films such as Social network, Silver ball, Steve Jobs, and The Chicago 7 trial. Notably, Being the Ricardos is not considered an official biopic, rather it is a fictional story that takes place during the real life of Ball and Arnez. The film is being produced at Amazon Studios, which could mean it will land on Amazon Prime before being released elsewhere, but that’s only speculative at this point.
In a previous interview with Variety, Kidman spoke of taking on the task of representing Ball and revealed that she was thrilled to receive the offer. âI was like, ‘Yeah, I would love to try,'” she said. âWith the words of Aaron and his leadership and Javierâ¦ that’s kind of a wonderful prospect, you know. But hey, let’s go. Try it. Do my best – see if I can do it.â
Kidman then revealed that she prepared for the role by watching a lot of old people I love lucy episodes. I love Lucille, after watching and exploring her, “she told the outlet.” She’s an amazing woman. I’m very happy people are seeing what Aaron found out about her and the way he played Desi and Lucy and how it is so rich. I didn’t know any of this. Being the Ricardos hits theaters on December 10th. It will debut on Amazon Prime 11 days later on December 21.
